“Week-end of shopping”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2012

We just spent last weekend, 4 generations of shoppers at the Lafayette Oceanfront resort. The rooms right on the beach were great. All of our family members were very comfortable. Beds were very comfortable, the room was clean and spacious. It was nice to have cozy rooms to return to with room for us all to sit and chat. The staff was friendly and helpful. Close to outlet shopping a real bonus too. This is our second year staying at one of the Lafayette resorts for our spring shopping trip and we will be going back again. Thanks everyone for making our time together so memorable.

This hotel is a great find. The room right on the ocean was perfect, the service was good, the hot tub was great, and best of all watching the full moon rise over the ocean was amazing. We'll be going back again hopefully sooner than later.

Roadtripping in Maine and wanted an oceanfront room. It was off season, cool and rainy but an oceanfront room was calling our names anyways. We picked Lafayettes thanks to tripadvisor. Staff was accomodating and nice. We paid off season rates for an upgrade room. Outside of the building made us wonder about our choice when we approached. It was clean and maintained but older. The inside of the room was perfect though. It was small but very inviting, clean and updated. We were in the 2nd floor (only 2 floors) and had a small balcony with 2 chairs and a table outside. Refrig and micro along with a big flatscreen tv. Shower, toilet area was small but all looked new. Sink was outside the shower area. They made great use of older building and small rooms. We were impressed and very comfortable. Wonderful view of the beach from the room. Slept with the door partly open to listen to the waves. Room had a small loveseat, chair and coffee table in front of the sliding doors out onto the balcony. Would love to go back and visit again.

We had a wonderful time at Lafayette's. There were 6 in our party, 2 high schoolers, 2 middle schoolers, hubby and I. The room was clean and met our needs, the indoor heated pool was excellent as was the jacuzzi. The decor of the main building, which is where we stayed, reminds me of the 70's but that to doesn't matter. The staff is great, very friendly and they work hard to ensure their guests have a great stay. Everything was very clean! Beds and pillows were comfortable too - rooms had a fridge, microwave and hairdryer. They also provided towels for use at the pool.

Our room was on the first floor, and there was a patio that overlooked a small parking lot between the building and the beach. We watched the sunrise two mornings and were pretty much the only ones out there.

The location is great - it's definitely at the beach - we walked on the beach a number of times. Local restaurants are plentiful. My husband and our 16 year old son both wished we had been able to stay longer - it was a great trip!

We will definitely return!

Room Tip: If you have more than 4 in your room you may want to stay on the ground floor as the patio will acco...

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Lafayette's Oceanfront Resort is directly on Wells Beach, one of the largest sandy beaches in Maine. We have a complex of nine different buildings, five of which sit right on the beach. Many of our rooms have private balconies with panoramic views of the ocean. We are open year round so you do not need to miss any season. Although summer is certainly the most popular season in Maine, the beauty of this coastal area is enchanting throughout the year. Wells Beach is fun for families. Walk from your room onto the sand to swim, build sand castles, stroll in the surf looking for shells and rocks or just relax and enjoy the feel of the sun on your face while you enjoy the view. The indoor pool and the hot tub with a waterfall are very relaxing after a hot day in the sun. The playground and the arcade will entertain the children after the beach. ... more   less
